Wisconsin Craft Brewery Day: Madison Region

Presented by:  MadREP
Location:  Delta Beer Lab   (167 E Badger Rd, Madison, WI 53713)
Time: 4:00 PM

Please join MadREP for the Madison Region’s local Wisconsin Craft Brewery Day event. We will gather at 4:00 pm at Delta Beer Lab, a newly opened craft brewery located at 167 E Badger Rd, Madison, WI 53713. At 4:30 pm, we will raise our glasses as we participate in the statewide toast.

Governor Tony Evers recently announced that he, Lieutenant Governor Mandela Barnes, Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) Deputy Secretary Tricia Braun, and other state, county, city and community officials will visit craft breweries across the state on Thursday, Sept. 26 to celebrate Wisconsin Craft Brewery Day.

Craft breweries provide significant opportunities for community development. Not only do these breweries add value and bring in more taxes to their communities, but they also create a meeting place for informal social gatherings as well as events like art shows or live music. Additionally, many Wisconsin breweries continue to purchase and renovate underutilized and vacant historical buildings, acting as a catalyst for other businesses to invest in communities with underutilized properties.

To end the day, all officials, local residents and other craft beer fans are encouraged to participate in a “Statewide Cheers” around the state at 4:30 p.m. on social media. Using the hashtag #WICraftBeer, participants in Craft Brewery Day, regional economic development organizations and all fans of craft beer are encouraged to head to their local craft brewery and post a picture hoisting a Wisconsin craft beer. A number of local economic development partners (including MadREP) will be hosting events to celebrate.
